Book Excerpt: 1985-1996 Suzuki GSX600, GSX750, GSXR750, GSXR1100 Repair Manual


  1. Before installing the new pistons rings, the ring end gaps must be checked.
  2. Lay out the pistons and the new ring sets so the rings will be matched with the same piston and cylinder during the end gap measurement procedure and engine assembly.
  3. Measure the free end gap of each compression ring (see illustration). If any are not within the range listed in this Chapter?s Specifications, replace the rings as a set.
  4. Insert the top (No. 1) ring into the bottom of the first cylinder and square it up with the cylinder walls by pushing it in with the top of the piston (see illustration).

    The ring should be about one inch above the bottom edge of the cylinder. To measure the end gap, slip a feeler gauge between the ends of the ring as shown and compare the measurement to the Specifications.

  5. If the gap is larger or smaller then specified, double check to make sure that you have the correct rings before proceeding.
  6. If the gap is too small, it must be enlarged or the ring ends may come in contact with each other during engine operation, which can cause serious damage. The end gap can be increased by filing the rings ends very carefully with a fine file (see illustration).
  7. Repeat the procedure for each ring that will be installed in the first cylinder and for each ring in the remaining cylinders. Remember to keep the rings, pistons and cylinders matched up.



  1. Support the bike securely so it can?t be knocked over during this procedure.
  2. Remove the fairing panels as needed for removal access (see Chapter 7).
  3. 1986 through 1988 GSX-R1100 models: Disconnect the electrical connectors for the NEAS units.
  4. Remove the front brake calipers and front wheel (see Chapter 6).
  5. Remove the front fender (see Chapter 7).
  6. Remove the handlebars (see Section 5). Support them so the cables, wires and brake hose aren?t strained or kinked.
  7. Remove any wiring harness clamps or straps from the fork tubes. On late GSX-R750 and GSX-R1100 models, detach the steering damper from the right fork (see Section 10).
  8. If you are planning to disassemble the forks, loosen the cap bolt at the top of each fork (all except Katana 1100 and GSX1100F) or press down on the fork cap and remove the retaining ring (Katana 1100GSX1100F). Don?t remove the cap bolts yet.
  9. Loosen the fork upper and lower triple clamp bolts (see illustration), then twist the fork tubes and slide them downward and out of the triple clamps (see illustration).
